Pt. 3: September 18th-21st, Balducci, Patterson, and Lackey

This series of posts outlines what is public about the conversations that lead to the indictment of Dickie Scruggs and others for judicial bribery. Part 1 outlined Tim Balducci’s initial off-the-record approach of Judge Lackey and Part 2 described conversations between the two from late May until early September, a period the defense says Lackey “pursued” Balducci. This post deals with the period that talk moves from hints to an actual cash bribe.
